Vancouver Canadians Fall Short in Their Strive for Six

Lane Thomas digs in at the Nat

But there is no joy in Vancouver, for the mighty Canadians have struck out. After making the playoffs for the past five years, including three straight Northwest League championships, the Vancouver Canadians, for the first time since they have been affiliated with the Toronto Blue Jays, will be on the outside looking in come playoff time. […]


Charting Vancouver Canadians’ Evan Smith

Evan Smith delivers for the C's

‘Twas the night before Seattle and all through B.C. (the lower bit at least) every Jays fan was stirring, even Tony G**. Blue Jays gear was folded and packed with care, while everyone hopes the US border will be bare. The adults are nestled all snug in their beds while visions of IPA’s, Hefeweizen’s and Cowgirls […]


Ladner’s Robson Returns to Roots

Robson throws a change on his return to the Nat

As Vancouver Canadians pitching coach Jim Czajkowski hinted at during media day, Ladner native and 2013 C’s legend Tom Robson arrived home this week to continue his rehab from Tommy John surgery.  On a similar note, I returned to the Nat after three weeks of trying to pickle my liver in England.  Sure, most would […]


YourVanC’s Weekly – Episode 21- Meet the C’s!

Clinton Hollon, from extended to Vancouver

If last week Greg and I got together with Ewan Ross for the second annual Blue Jays draft edition of the podcast then this is officially the 2nd annual (see a theme here?) meet the Vancouver Canadians edition. There were only 24 players that flew north from Dunedin last Sunday but as we learned through […]


Happy Draft Day!

Let’s be honest, I’m probably not going to get this post finished today (update, I’m only a day late!), making the immediacy of the title somewhat redundant but hey, at least I’m trying right!  For Blue Jays fans, this year’s edition of the annual MLB draft doesn’t contain the edge of your seat excitement that […]


Blue Jays Minor League Review – May Flowers

Wouldn't Jeff Hoffman look good in C's red and black?

I’m not exactly certain what trajectory a lead balloon will take if dropped from a higher place, say CN Tower for example, but I’m willing to guess it plummets.  Quickly.  Similar to my feelings on the Blue Jays season.  Of course, I’m a raging optimist, and at a mere two games  under .500 heading into […]


Toronto Blue Jays Top Prospects: Mid Tier Love Part 1

I have had to re-position my goals somewhat when it comes to this list.  Originally, I hoped to get it done prior to the Vancouver Canadians luncheon.  That was a long time ago.  Now the hope is that everything is tied up sometime in mid March.  I’m sure we’ll wait with baited breath. I’d also […]


Vancouver Canadians: A Full Season of Prospects

Will we see him from the start? (image courtesy of MLB Prospect Portal)

The weather in Vancouver may not agree with me but with Blue Jay minor leaguers about to start playing exhibition games we are one step closer to opening day at the Nat. This off-season, I have been doing a lot of predicting. If I could ensure one prediction is correct it would be that I’ll […]


Canadians Prospecting

An interesting tidbit came down the wire Wednesday. I initially glossed over it, since, in the short term, I didn’t believe it had any bearing on the Vancouver Canadians this season. Digging a bit deeper though, there was a second move in the Blue Jays system on the day which may very well affect Vancouver’s […]
